Sure, you shouldn't skip a step, thorough cleansing should always be on the agenda, but then?
“Moisturisers are integral to supporting and strengthening the skin’s barrier function, without it your skin will become exposed to the environmental aggressors such as UV rays, pollution and different temperatures.”
Dr. Timm Golueke
Hydration is crucial for your skin's ability to regulate itself. While the overproduction of oil can cause breakouts, so can dryness.
Moisturizing your face can reduce your chance of developing extreme dryness or oiliness.
It is also is an important step to maintain your skin’s healthy cells and to protect it from irritation.
HOW TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT MOISTURIZER?
You should choose your moisturizer based on your skin type. If you are oily or combination, a lighter texture will be better. If you are dryer, you need more nourishment.
